Undergraduate Teaching

I have been teaching undergraduate Criminology and historical studies since 2001. Currently I am coordinating:

ATS1282 Criminal Justice: An Introduction 

ATS3459 Punishment, Power and Prisons

ATS4699 Criminology Honours Coursework: Research Practice and Policy

Higher Degree Supervision

I am available to supervise PhD and MA theses focused on histories and theories of punishment in Australia and internationally. I am particularly interested in research that aligns with my expertise and that is broadly focused on generating theoretical and empirical insights into institutionally generated harm and violence.

I am currently welcoming candidates prepared to pursue the following specific research project areas:

Prison Privatisation in Australia and Internationally: A Comparative Perspective

Deaths in Closed Institutions

Deaths in Custody and State Accountability: 20 Years on from RCIADIC 

Alternatives to Imprisonment: Imagining a Prison-Free Future
